MNWS Virtual Demo Artist – Karen Knutson
7: 00 pm
Painting in an Illusionary (ghostlike) Manner
Demonstrator: Karen Knutson www.karenknutson.com
Karen will demonstrate how to have clean colors, and how to make objects ghost-like. This will be a limited color watercolor. Several tricks make this an easy process, but when you see the finished painting, you won’t think it’s simple. Watch this Zoom demonstration to learn the secrets to a transparent watercolor with good design.
Karen recently obtained signature status in the American Watercolor Society, based in NY. It was her lifelong dream to get that signature. She also has earned signature status in Transparent Watercolor Society of America, San Diego Watercolor Society, Northwest Watercolor Society, Rocky Mountain National Watermedia Society, Red River Watercolor Society, Minnesota Watercolor Society, Missouri Watercolor Society, Montana Watercolor Society, Northern Plains Watercolor Society, Northstar Watermedia Society, and has had many paintings accepted into other national shows. Karen loves teaching workshops monthly all over the United States. Recently, she has grown to love outdoor painting (plein air), even though it is a difficult process. “I finally know what it means to “be in the moment and not care about the outcome of the painting, when I plein air paint. I remember smells, people, conversations, temperatures, everything…. Just by looking at the painting that I did outdoors.” Karen is a lifetime member of Minnesota Watercolor.
